Orange Media Network strives to publish material that will serve the university community as a whole. Orange Media Network reserves the right to reject advertising that may be offensive or in poor taste, states or implies discrimination, is fraudulent, deceptive, obscene or an incitement to violate national, state, or local laws.

Ads considered to be in violation of this policy will be reviewed by the OMN committee and voted on. Clients will be notified by email.

Advertising resembling editorial material must contain the word “Advertisement” at the top. Inserts resembling editorial material must carry the notation “This entire supplement is paid advertising” at the top of the cover.

To be considered for credit, claims based on real damages must be made to the Business Manager no more than seven days after the first publication of the ad. Credits are given for the first incorrect insertion only, and are limited to the portion of the advertisement in error. Credits shall not exceed the total cost of the advertisement in error.
